The Golden Globes are the most fashionable – and fashion conscious – awards show of the year. The SAGS are understated, as the upstart late-bloomer awards show – the Emmy's only have TV stars as they are only for television – and the Oscars are all about legacy and going classic and simple elegance.
Now, the Globes do have up and down fashion years – sometimes the gowns just too over the top – sometimes too minimal. But the 74th Golden Globes struck the right chord: a lot of metallics, color (pink was one – yellow was another), embellishment, cleavage (oh those deep V's!), nude and silver lace. Of course, there are always a few thumbs-down looks – or it would be no fun, right?? Overly-embellished ballgowns and anything frilly looked – well – been there, done that wrong. So – in that stylish spirit – here are Too Fab's ten best dressed – and the five worst.
TooFab's Top 10: Best Dressed at the Golden Globes -- See Photos>>
Natalie Portman in a mustard colored Prada round sleeved high-waisted gown with three quarter length sleeves and crystal details
Amy Adams in a sexy classy strapless Tom Ford sequin sheath gown, with square bustier.
Emma Stone in a silver-on-nude-pink Valentino low v-necked gown, embellished with crystals.
Ruth Negga in a silver Louis Vuitton custom sequin short sleeved gown with gold zipper.
Michelle Williams in a Louis Vuitton off the shoulder black and white silk gown – the rare awards show print gown!
Nicole Kidman in a silver “shipwreck” sequin embroidered ivory gown with distressed tulle hem and off shoulder puff sleeves, by Alexander McQueen.
Evan Rachel Wood in a very brave custom Altuzarra black pantsuit/tuxedo with white pussy-bow tie blouse.
Zoe Saldana in a Gucci ruffled silk two tone gown of pink and unexpected coral, with gold wrap belt.
Sarah Paulson in a shiny crystallized embellished Marc Jacobs short sleeved gold metallic gown.
Sienna Miller in a jersey shiny white-silver Michael Kors sleek gown with peekaboo waist
Lily Collins in a pink crystal-beaded Zuhair Murad short sleeved ballgown – looking like a cross between Alice in Wonderland and Marie Antoinette.
Carrie Underwood in a candy pink ruffled Iris Serban gown that looked like a cross between pink rippled cake icing – and a female body part we don't want to mention. It had the internet buzzing before the show was even over – some thought it “vulgar” and very sexual. We doubt that's what she intended – but it was still horrendous!
Janelle Monae in a short puffy Armani Prive black and white dress that looked like she borrowed it from her teenage cousin who didn't wear it to the prom because it was too silly. And too young.
Sarah Jessica Park in a white off shoulder Vera Wang ballgown ruined by a Princes Leia out of this world hairstyle (in honor of Carrie Fisher) and heavy heavy makeup.
Drew Barrymore looked like an art deco style hippie chick in a white and silver fringe over the top Monique Lhullier far-too-busy gown.
